Tanjung Jepun dive site is THE place in Bali to see blue spoted stingrays! It is also a great place for underwater macro photography (frogfish) with many strange and rare animals and is a very good night dive. There is an artificial reef and a small wreck at about 17 m deep. If you are lucky enough, during night diving in Padang Bai you can spot the rare coral cat shark!

Macro observation and photography spot. This place has been recommended for Night diving experience! This location is a Reef. Most people are here for Wreck Diving.

You can dive Tanjung Jepun all year long. Access: from the Shore. See the map of Tanjung Jepun on the right for the exact location.

One Dive Log in “Tanjung Jepun

  1. Jepun may not be as pretty as it once was. The reefs seem to have been damaged in the last few years. The presence of a submarine for tourists often seen lifting sand onto the corals and modifying the underwater environment in order to make it more suited to its business activities may not be entirely foreign to the matter.
    That being said, the dive site is still great for macro. Ghost pipefish, nudibranches, frogfish, juvenile batfish and many more are hiding in the wreck or the artificial reefs scuttled or constructed by the same company who exploits the submarine. Look for a giant marbled ray that takes shelter under the wreck in the morning. Blue spotted stingrays congregate here “en masse’ and it’s a great place to take pictures of them. Thorny seahorses can also be seen at times. Beware of the submarine as its captain seems to have a grudge on divers and likes to play chicken with them!
    More seriously, another reason to dive this site is that it is a great place for a night dive. Spanish dancers and other types of seaslugs AKA nudibranches carpet the bottom. Rare custaceans accompany one of the biggest moray eels that we have ever spotted in Bali on its nocturnal excursions. Juvenile leopard sharks also shelter here, but their exact location still remains a secret that we are not willing to share ;-)
